The Callaways series launches!

On A Night Like This by Barbara FreethyON A NIGHT LIKE THIS launches my new connected family series called the CALLAWAYS. The Callaways are a blended, Irish family — a yours, mine and ours kind of clan. Or a little bit like the Brady bunch. The mom had two daughters, and the father had four sons, and together they had twins! Each of the eight siblings will be getting a story, and there may be some other tie-ins as well as the series goes along.

The Callaways have a long standing family tradition to “serve and protect” and many of the men and a few of the women have served as San Francisco firefighters. Burke, the oldest son, is a firefighter in San Francisco. Aiden is a smoke jumper out of Northern California, and Colton, the baby of the family is just finishing up paramedic training and hoping to get a job as a firefighter. Emma is an arson investigator, and her story is featured in book two, titled, SO THIS IS LOVE. Others serve and protect in different ways. Nicole is a teacher and a mother. Drew is a helicopter pilot with the Coast Guard, and Shayla is finishing up medical school in her quest to be a doctor. And then there's Sean, the rebel musician who seems quite out of step with the rest of his dedicated family, but he has his own story to tell.

I hope you'll enjoy reading about the Callaways as much as I'm enjoying writing about them. The first book ON A NIGHT LIKE THIS is now on sale at all ebook retailers and can be purchased in print from SO THIS IS LOVE will be released on March 26, 2013, and two more books will out in the summer and fall of this year.

I hope you'll check out the Callaways!
